How much does a killer whale weigh?
Male killer whales average 22 to 27 feet 96.7 to 8.2 m) and usually weigh between 8,000 and 12,000 pounds (3,628 to 5,442 kg). Females average 17 to 20 feet (5.2 to 6.1 m) and usually weigh between 3,000 and 8,000 pounds (1,362 to 3,628 kg). As a male killer whale grows to adulthood it gains weight, and its pectoral flippers, dorsal fin and tail flukes grow larger than those of females.

Why is a killer whale called a killer whale?
Killer whales are the ocean's top predator, which means they eat just about anything they want -- including other species of whales. Killer whales are at the top of the ocean's food chain. That means there is no animal in the ocean that preys upon them and they can eat anything in the sea.

What do killer whales eat?
Killer whales sometimes eat sharks, but they not very often. Killer whales usually eat fish, and sometimes seals, sea lions or even whales or dolphins. Even though they are the top predator of the sea, ill, injured, or young killer whales may be prey for some large species of shark.
